KATELYNN

Katelynn

Welcome!  My name is Katelynn and I live on the South Shore, MA with my husband and doggy (pictured on the left). I am a planner and organizer.  I like to plan.  I like to have a plan.  I like other people to have plans.  Always have, always will.  But, over the years, I have realized that not everyone loves planning and organizing as much as I do.  Crazy, right?!  So I decided to put my neurotic ways to good use and help others with their planning.  I am here to take the stress out of your wedding day so you can enjoy!

I started this business in 2016 after being thrown right into the the bridesmaid/MOH life.  It happens to everyone – that year when every person you know gets married at once.  In my case, I was asked to be a MOH for my sister, and a bridesmaid for two of my best friends, all in the same year (oh, and I got engaged too!).  To some, that last sentence may sound completely overwhelming and stressful.  To me, it was a dream come true.  I was making spreadsheets and to-do lists in my sleep.  I planned four bachelorette parties (all weekend getaways) and three showers.  And I LOVED it.  Nothing gets me more fired up than a good spreadsheet and a well executed plan.  While I was doing all of this for my friends and myself, I realized that I was really good at it.  I always knew of myself to be a planner, but I hadn’t yet applied it to weddings.  Once I did, the magic happened.  I didn’t know what I was doing all of these years wasting my organizational skills and perfectionism on ordinary events.  It was time to put my craziness to use on the big stage!

The majority of my clients find gorgeous locations for their weddings that are very DIY.  Rustic barns, backyard tents, historic mansions, you name it!  And while these are amazing venues, they do require a bit more work.  But that is where I come in!  I operate as the main point of contact for your vendors, get to the venue early, set-up whatever you need set-up (while perfectly executing your vision), and make sure everything goes as planned and on-time.  Taking on your stress gives me energy.  Perfectly executing your plan puts me in my happy place.  Seeing the look on your faces when you enter the reception…you can’t beat that.

CHRISTINA

Christina

Hello, my name is Christina! I live on the Seacoast of NH and I’ve been a wedding and event planner for 9 years. I’ve worked at some pretty amazing places, including the Sagamore Resort in Lake George New York, the Wentworth by the Sea Hotel & Spa in New Castle New Hampshire, and Portsmouth Harbor Events in beautiful downtown Portsmouth NH. It was at these places that I started a pretty intense, lifelong love affair with organization and planning.

I have to admit, and not to sound too full of myself, but I’m pretty good at it. I love being able to take control. Are you concerned about who’s going to call all your vendors, go over the timeline with them, and be there on the day of as the point of contact in case any issues or questions arise? Well I’m your girl! I love timelines, and I love lists. My lists have lists…and I can’t get through the day without them. I’ll be available to confirm everyone knows where they’re going and when they should be there, and to make sure you don’t have 16 people calling you throughout the day. Let them harass me… not you! I’m an A+ problem solver, and I love to do it!

I will also be fiercely dedicated to making your wedding day everything you imagined. Ever had a job interview and they ask you, “what’s your biggest weakness” or “what’s one thing you think you could work on?” Well, my go to answer is always “I’m too much of a perfectionist…” and my reasoning is that sometimes you just need to let things go and move on with your life, right?! Well, in normal day to day life…I’d say, yes…Christina…stop obsessing that the picture is ½ an inch off of where it should be hanging to be perfectly centered on that wall…but in the case of your wedding, I don’t think anything can be “too perfect”. I love getting the little details just right. You have a vision of what this day will look like. My job is to make that vision come to life, and exceed every expectation you have. I love transforming a room from something simple to something amazing.

Your wedding day is one that should be all about fun, and hello…love! Above all else, you’re marrying the love of your life, and that’s the most important thing. Let me take care of the little stuff that can get in the way of you remembering that that’s what it’s all about!
